US import tariffs on Argentina biofuels hurt producers

Argentina has said it will challenge the tariffs at the WTO, but in the meantime, formerly lucrative factories in Argentina will be forced to find new customers or cut production and staff.

Argentina's once-booming biofuels industry is suffering after its main market, the United States, imposed a 72 percent tariff on imports.

The move is part of the Trump administration's "America First" policy, which Argentinians have called "protectionist".
